Sunrise Park is one of my favorite places to visit.  There is always lots to watch; birds, kayakers, fishermen, boaters, dogs and their owners.  The pond where I so often watch egrets, herons, and wood storks wading and catching their food has been getting stagnant due to a buildup of sand which has prevented the fresh water from flushing it out on a regular basis.  No more, thanks to the 8 foot tides that we have been experiencing lately.  This morning I was thrilled to see that the water has broken clean through and created a wide opening – awesome!  I can’t wait to go back at low tide and see it all clean with fresh water and fresh fish for the birds!
